URS collections

We continue to experience prolonged periods when the London Borough of Tower Hamlets has been unable to collect refuse from URS’s (Underground Refuse Systems) from our estates. We have been advised that they continue to experience vehicle breakdown issues and are unable to confirm when a full and regular service will be restored. We will continue to place white sacks at all locations to minimise the impact on residents and to help to prevent refuse from spreading across estates. Every effort is being made to work with LBTH to restore the service .

Example of refuse problems in other non Poplar Harca areas where white bags aren’t used
